These monorails, will feed into Delhi metro. Malaysia is also planning to make monorails.

New Delhi: Japan has become the front runner in the monorail race. Delhi government is seriously considering the hi-tech profit-making Tokyo model over others.
Hitachi, a major stakeholder in Japan’s monorail projects, has shown interest in Delhi’s monorail venture. According to sources, the company had presented its model before the government earlier this month and was able to clear doubts regarding carrying capacity, space requirement and maintenance costs.
Considered an eco-friendly transport mode, monorail is an elevated network which runs on a single track. Transport experts have been criticising the monorail as most of the countries have used it as a mode of transport in amusement parks.
There have been criticisms regarding its manoeuvrability since it is on a single track. A senior official said: ‘‘Japanese monorail has solved this problem as it has track switches, that is, it can switch from one track to another safely. It has tube tyres which reduce noise pollution. Japan has 11 monorail systems which are used as a mode of mass transit.’’
Monorail tracks are mounted on slim guideways that run aligned to the central verge of the road. According to sources, Delhi government is seriously considering Hitachi’s proposal since it has experience in manufacturing monorail coaches and profitably implementing the system.
Delhi transport minister Haroon Yusuf said:‘‘They had given a presentation. The technology being used is good and reliable. They have been in this business for almost 50 years and are making good profit. So we are considering them. There is another meeting on October 14 regarding this issue.’’
The government has identified different corridors in the city for implementation of the project.
The minister said: ‘‘We have already identified a 44-km corridor in Delhi. There are various areas covered under this. But we have not decided where will it be implemented first.’’ Delhi government is considering whether it could ask for funds or assistance from the Centre.
